Uh Oh, SpaghettiO's


Donald Goerke, creator of one of my favorite meals as a child has past away at the age of 83.
Who here didn't eat SpaghettiO's as a child?

I'm showing my age when I tell you my kids used to eat it from time to time.

I tasted it recently for my grandson and decided I wouldn't feed it to him anymore.

I gag on it now, but when I was a kid I couldn't get enough of it.

I never ate it as a child and never had it in my kitchen.

well, I, for 1, loved those as a kiddo. way easier for a 4-year-old than a plate of spaghetti & way more suited than tangy, herbed sauces.

I used to enjoy them. When my daughter was old enough I was very excited to have her try it thinking it would be great kid food. She took one bite and said she never wated to try them again. She was much happier with her risotto milanese or her rib eye steak or her osso busco.
